WINSTON-SALEM, North Carolina — Houston Rockets All-Star guard and former Wake Forest Demon Deacon CP3 (Chris Paul) is donating $2.5 million in support of the basketball team.
The donation announced Tuesday is the school’s largest by a former Wake Forest basketball player.
School officials say it will assist a project to expand and enhance the men’s and women’s locker rooms, and the men’s locker room will be named for him.
The Houston Rockets guard and Winston-Salem native led Wake Forest to its first No. 1 ranking in 2004-05 before becoming a nine-time All-Star and two-time Olympic gold medal winner with the U.S. national team.
